Welcome to Belmont online!
Belmont Synagogue is an orthodox community of six hundred families in north-west London founded in the mid-1960s. We have a wide range of communal activities including daily services, educational programmes and special activities for all age groups.
The community is led by Rabbi Marc Levene and his wife Lisa, as well as Chair, Barbara Mazliah, and a Board of Management.
No longer one of the best kept secrets in the United Synagogue, we are surrounded by excellent Jewish primary and secondary schools.
Belmont is also surrounded by an eruv, which connects to other local eruvim and makes it easier to celebrate Shabbat with friends and family.
You will find more about Belmont on this website but the best way to get to know us it to visit. We promise you a very warm welcome.
Local shops and caterers offering deliveries or click-and-collect services are listed on the food shopping & takeaways page. There is also a list of other kosher shops throughout north west London which can be downloaded and a list of restaurants open for takeaways.

Please click here to download a printable timetable of all the events we have planned for this month. If anyone has questions about using the technology to access these events, please do call the office number and we will try to help where possible.
We have also produced a list of links used for the recurring events/series that we hold. This list can be found here. It is a Word document to give you flexibility. You can save it to your desktop, your mobile device or your computer files, or you can copy the list directly to your phone/computer notes, etc. The idea is to avoid you having to scroll through old emails to find links for events. One-off events (speakers, entertainment, etc) will each still have an individual link.
